Breaking Barriers earned my trust; the team are incredibly patient and informative which helped build my confidence and knowledge of the UK job market. I was provided with various support from Breaking Barriers and now I am currently working at Mayer Brown in my dream job role and looking towards the future.
After a long waiting period as an asylum seeker, I became a refugee. It was fantastic news, but after applying for jobs for a while, I understood that I needed professional help from someone who knows what kind of problems a refugee may face during a job search in the UK. These barriers range from understanding the job market to language barriers to having no UK work experience.
